In this workshop, we hope to address some of the following questions. Can we
develop technologies for families? What brings families together (celebrations,
meals, chores, playing, etc.)? Can we develop innovative artifacts that support
the needs of co-located and distributed intergenerational user? How to design
for and with families? How can these technologies be embedded in our homes? Can
they become a part of the very fabric of everyday family life?
Potential participants should submit a position paper in HTML format. It should
include 1-3 pages of text and links to relevant research. A maximum of 15
participants will be selected. Selection criteria will include relevance, active
involvement in research, and the presence of results to be shared with the
group. We will balance industry and academia representation, and encourage
international balance. Participants will be expected to read all position papers
before the workshop. During the day demos and videos from selected projects will
be presented in the morning. The afternoon will be dedicated to discussion and
brainstorming using low-tech prototyping techniques.
